MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state officials want to hear from the public as they pursue a plan to change the way health care is paid for in the state.

At upcoming public forums, state officials will describe the “all-payer model,” in which health providers are paid for outcomes, rather than according to how many services they perform.

Gov. Peter Shumlin says the point is to get rapidly rising health care costs under control. Sessions are set for:

-Monday, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Porter Community Room of the Montshire Museum in Norwich;

-Thursday, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the University of Vermont Recital Hall on the UVM campus in Burlington;

-Tuesday, Oct. 11, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Community Health Education Center at the Rutland Regional Medical Center.
